Red Balloon

Getting older isn't always fun, but balloons, bal

loons are always fun.

Because I want to pretend -sometimes- that I am closer to 7 than 27, I got a big red balloon and walked all over the city with it. No kidding. Across the Hennepin Ave bridge, the length of St Anthony Main, and back across the Stone Arch. 

I guess I thought I needed a birthday parade.

Little and black are my birthday dress requirements. Inside scoop: all the best LBD's come out around holiday time. I snapped this one up (and 2 others) on sale after Christmas. Hunt them down and stock them up. 

When it comes to shoes, think outside your basic black box. These green booties are weird but made for me. 

What's your weird? Whatever it is, wear it proud.
